I have been wanting to buy a Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 SL9SD from China because it's less expensive. I noticed that Wiki lists it as P/N: LF80537GF0534M which does not correspond with China's part number. I want to be sure because Intel made this processor for two different sockets that are electrically incompatible. Socket 'M' & Socket 479. And then again, Wiki lists it with a FCBGA6 Socket which makes it even more confusing.
Can someone please explain this confusing mess?
P/N: LF805375650A585 P/N: LF805375646A313
The T7600 is available in two packages:
T7600 BGA Socket M
- Spec Code SL9SJ
- Ordering Code LE80537GF0534M
T7600 PGA Socket M
- Spec Code SL9SD
- Ordering Code BX80537T7600
- Spec Code SL9SD
- Ordering Code LF80537GF0534M
Just look under "ordering and compliance" at this link:
Doc (not an Intel employee or contractor)
According to Wiki, the prefix LE is for Socket M and the LF is for Socket FCBGA6 (Whatever the hell that is?? Or should it be Socket P??)
So what you are telling me is not to trust China's P/N even though the description is the same? Should I trust the description? Or contact the Seller?
I'm trying to upgrade a Mac Mini for a friend. The T7600 processor seems to be very popular and the price range in the US is too much. Even the ones on eBay are coming from China. I really don't want to put out a lot of money.
